Icebreaker activities for a stag party can be a great way to bring new people together before the big night.

Treasure Hunts

If you’re looking for a fun and original stag do idea, a treasure hunt is a fantastic choice. These events can be held on foot, by vehicle or on the Internet, and can be highly customised to suit the interests of the group. They’re great for breaking the ice amongst the new group of stags.

Alternatively, you could arrange for a treasure hunt in London, where you’ll be searching for a Hackney carriage or a black cab! These hunts are run off a tablet or Android phone and are documented with a flip video camera. 


Treasure hunts are typically designed to have the group searching for clues while also incorporating drinking and pub quizzes. They can be run by a professional or by the guys in the group. You can find a range of hunts that range from Around the World in 80 Days to Taxopoly – whatever you’re looking for, there’s one to suit your group.

pigeon shooting

A game of clay pigeon shooting is also an excellent icebreaker activity. Not only will you have fun competing with other stags, but you’ll also be able to bond with your friends. Be sure to wear a flat hat. These stag do activities can make the day go by much faster.

Typically, groups are locked inside a room for an hour and must work together to figure out the clues and solve puzzles to get out. Many locations offer themed stag do games and can even be themed after famous horror movies.


This game requires everyone in the group to work together, so it’s great for getting to know each other and reducing awkwardness.

Time Finding

You’ll need to spend some time finding these clues and solving riddles before you can win the prize!


Another good treasure hunt idea is a scavenger hunt in which you’ll have to find clues hidden around Edinburgh.

Indoor stag

Indoor stag do activities can be found at a number of indoor venues across the country. Some of these activities are aimed at testing strength and endurance. For example, the JUMP on the North Shore offers a ninja Warrior obstacle course.

A game of zorb football is also a fun activity for indoor stag dos. Inflatable balls are used as targets for players, who must try to catch the ball without falling off. This activity is fun for everyone and will leave you laughing.


Brewpub Hosts

This brewpub hosts the ultimate alpha male contest where teams can compete for a prize of a keg or two. You can also choose to sample the Big Momma Fokker burger, which comes with bacon, pineapple, jalapenos, and onion rings, along with your choice of shake.
